    Please forgive that this is my first post - I've been a member at the Les Paul Forum for years, and just found out about ETSG!

    Offered for sale - 1962 LPSG Junior
    Start with the "beauty" shot... as good as it will ever look! ;-)

    Guitar is 100 percent original with no cracks / breaks / repairs ever (other than a refret or two).
    She is a real featherweight screamer (WEIGHS 5 lbs, 11.7 ounces!!), and has been WELL LOVED / PLAYED as evidenced by normal play wear, dings, scratches etc. to be expected on a well loved example of a 52 year old instrument. The pickup measures 8.25K at the output jack

    The finish is weather checked all over (more on the front than the back). There are some spots where the finish is worn through on the back of the neck - very smooth and comfy.

    Speaking of the neck, the nut is 1 11/16", and measures 0.83" at the first fret, 0.90" at the 12th fret - nicely rounded feeling - NOT flat / wide!

    The fretboard shows moderate wear - nothing too serious, and she's been refretted at least twice (once recently with vintage spec wire).

    There is a bit of a ding on the front of the headstock (between the "L" and "E" in Les), and a vintage ciggy burn which marred, but did not burn through the Gibson logo.

    There are various bumps and bruises as to be expected. I have photographed most of them as clearly as possible (link below). Some of the detail pics of the chips can look scary, but I shot them on super macro - the largest chip in the photos is no more than 3/16" x 9/64". The mark near the output jack is a scratch - NOT a crack!

    Currently fitted with:
    Historic lightning bolt bridge (intonated for plain G)
    Repro pickguard (the one in the pictures is the original)
    Repro tuners (the ones in the pictures are the originals)

    Original bridge / pickguard / tuners included in sale.

    Link to many high-res pics:

    The guitar will ship in a new Gibson SG case. I do not have the alligator case.

    I will only ship to the U.S lower 48 (or local pickup in northern New Jersey).

    Asking $3,000.00

    Discount for cash / local pickup in northern New Jersey

    Beautiful guitar, Jeff. Good luck, sorry I am poor.

    PS. WHY do people have to put cigarettes on the headstocks of guitars?

    (anti Political correct person that I am) That is so Gay

    Jeff, If I had the cash and lived in the US, it'd be mine in a heart beat. Hope you get what you want for it, and good luck with the sale mate.
